Could be a real problem

by BFilmFan In reply to active directory problem

First check the event log for any reported ID's. This is going to help isolate the cause of the issue. This will allow for a battle plan.

You may also need to do is run a Domain Controller Diagnostics by using the DCDiag tool. The DCDiag tool can be found in the tools section of the windows 2000 CD or downloaded from here:

Use the command line:

dcdiag /v /e /f:dcdiagLOG.txt /ferr:dcdiagERROR.txt

Once this report is generated, it will be assist in locating the issue and resolving it.

AD Problem

by kwameg_g In reply to Could be a real problem

I think we had that issue at one time, check to see if AD is trying to create a users home directory (under Profile in the user's properties tab) in in a location that is protected. There is a way to allow AD to create to directory, but it may be easier to create the directory in advance to setup proper share permissions.
